The Brooklyn Latin School Reviews

202 reviews
All Categories
This is the smallest specialized high school with around 900 students total. If you like intimacy between teachers and your pupils this is definitely the school for you. However, this school focuses on public speaking including classwide seminars and declamations. These assessments teach you the skills to form unique, persuasive and clear arguments. If you want to be a political figure or lawyer I would recommend this school. If you are really shy or have stage fright this is not a good school for you to attend. This school participates in the International Baccalaureate program. In other schools families would have to pay around 1200 dollars for their children to participate in the program, however, this school pays for each student's participation. This causes the school to have disadvantages. Most of the school's funding goes towards the students' education, and as a result heating, air conditioning and the overall maintenance of the building is poor.

The Brooklyn Latn School is definitely a great school, considering how eager teachers are willing to work with students. Although the majority of the school is one floor, it doesn't really matter because students need to constantly go up and down the stairs. One thing we don't have,however, is a library. In addition, students aren't allowed to go outside which kind of lacks our freedom. But other than that, The Brooklyn Latin School is great!
This school definitely has its flaws but I wouldn't choose to receive my education anywhere else. Since the school is small, the community is very tight-knit and supportive. Many students are able to build meaningful relationships with one another, teachers, and faculty members. The school is also distinct as it incorporates classical elements (seminar, declamation, and Latin) into the core curriculum. Additionally, the school places emphasis on public speaking so more reserved students may have a harder time adjusting. The only major downsides are the small and unclean facilities and the location of the school. The neighborhood surrounding the school isn't that safe and the bathrooms are usually dirty. Overall, I would highly recommend this school!
